Lori Copeland in her new book, “Sisters of Mercy Flats book coverSisters of Mercy Flats” Book One in the Sisters of Mercy Flats series published by Harvest House Publishers takes us into the life of Abigail McDougal.

From the Back Cover:   “But then you came along…”

The three wily and beautiful McDougal sisters can swindle a man faster than it takes to lasso a calf. But their luck is running out, and they’re about to be hauled off to jail. When the wagon carrying them falls under attack, each sister is picked up by a different man. Unfortunately for Abigail, she’s grabbed by a twit of a shoe salesman, Mr. Hershall Digman. She steals his horse and rides off to the nearest town, not giving him another thought…until she discovers those secret papers in his saddlebags. Could such a dandy really be a Confederate spy?

As if to prove it, the man who comes storming after her is no shoe salesman, but a handsome Rebel captain who wants his papers back…at any cost. And Abigail wants a ride back home. Will the two of them ever resolve their differences?  And will they ever learn to trust in the God who won’t seem to let them go?

What a great way to start a series.  Three sisters, who are con artists, are finally arrested and in a prison wagon dressed as nuns when the wagon is attacked by Indians.   At the sound of the attack three men gallop to the rescue and each man takes a different sister.  This time the focus is on Abigail.  Seems her rescuer is not what he appears to be and she stole his horse with important papers in the saddlebags.  Now she has to team up with him to finish his mission and try to keep them both alive.  Historical fiction that takes place during The Civil War.  “Sisters of Mercy Flats” is a romance but it is much, much more.  Ms. Copeland explores the theme of deceit and what damage it can do.  “Sisters of Mercy Flats” is all about relationships and that is what makes this book a winner.  I enjoyed this book a lot and am looking forward to the next book in this series.
